MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MedX Health Corp. (“MedX”) (TSX-V: MDX) announced that it has shipped an initial order in excess of $120,000 of its SIAscopy technology to Spain through its marketing partnership with OncoTech LLC.
“Completing this large order early in the second quarter reinforces the growing interest in our technology as a pain-free non-invasive skin assessment tool,” noted Rob von der Porten, MedX's CEO. “OncoTech sees this as a first step in gaining awareness followed by further market penetration in Spain, including the application of MedX’s telemedicine platform in this large market.
